Bah, was excited to see the x31's on there really want a pair after i missed out on the amazon lightning deal, but nothing else in a similar price range to make the savings worthwhile. Had my fingers crossed for a psp model or basic kinect package making the list.

I still see it on the list, but yes it is now $29.99. At least the 360 version is $29.99 and still available with this deal. Not sure about PS3.




You got the GOTY version for $20, or the standard (or platinum hits) version?


It was also $19.99 this past BF at Gamestop, and I think a LD on Amazon. I expect it will hit that cheap again in the next month

My problem with LD is my lack of Prime Membership. What's the point of a $20 game if I have to toss in something else for Free Shipping..

What is with Kirby?
Every reviewer gave it so so reviews yet I can't find it anywhere (on sale), Amazon won't include it on their B1G150 sale, and most of the time it is 3rd party sellers asking $60+ for it?
For a game that came out months ago???

If the item cost $25 or more *before* the discount, then you get free super saver shipping. Not sure if you realize that or not. Figured I'd mention it.

Did Amazon change their rules?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Beats me. Must be that nostalgia thing. But it kind of pissed me off when they wouldn't do it. I talked to two seperate reps, and neither would budge. This sucks.

Gah. I can't figure out what to pair with Phineas and Ferb Across the 2nd Dimension. I don't really need any other games right now for myself. Sort of interested in upgrading to Borderlands GOTY, but if it's been $20 recently, then it will hit $20 on its own again before long. None of the 360 or Wii accessories are anything I need. I guess I'll just wait and see if Phineas gets a lower price of it's own before xmas.

Picked up AssCreedRev (for the husband) and SMT: Devil Survivor (for myself) last night. We were thinking of getting two more games, but there wasn't anything else we wanted badly enough...

if the regular price is over $25 you get free shipping.

So for example
HappyFunGame $29.99
Lightning Deal - $10
----
19.99 total & free shipping

Sounds like kiddie shovelware. Must be Wii-only. Real men play HumorlessDeathGame on 360/PS3.

Oct. 24 isn't really that long ago, especially for a first party Nintendo title.

All two day shipping for prime is free. I have been opting for longer shipping because I have to many games, and they give you .99 cents for amazon mp3s racked up almost 10 dollars.

Man, I was really hoping the 39.99 Saints Row The Third was still in here. That and Skyrim for $80 would be a merry Christmas indeed. Oh well.

I want to get Cave Story 3D and Devil Survivor Overclocked, but I can't bring myself to pay $30 each for games that can be had in similar versions for much cheaper/free.

Ok guys, I'm considering three $20 Xbox 360 games, and I'd like some opinions on them. I bought my 360 during the BF sales, and I've already built up a nice library of older games and newer Kinect titles. However, I'm seriously considering the following 3 games:

1. Orange Box - I heard the PS3 port was bad, so I never bothered to get it. The 360 version is a much better port, and even though I don't plan on playing Team Fortress, getting Half-Life 2, Episode 1, Episode 2 and Portal for $15 sounds like a great deal.

2. Mass Effect - I bought the PS3 version of ME2 when it dropped to $20, but now that I have a 360, I think I want to play the original. Is the original still worth playing? Also, if I buy the original, would it be better to just sell off the PS3 version of ME2 and pick up the 360 version since all my decisions in ME1 will directly tie into my 360 version of ME2? I know the PS3 version has all the extra DLC, but I'm not sure if it's worth giving up the DLC to have the Xbox 360 games tie together more seamlessly. I know I have the option of using the digital comic on the PS3 version to approximate the decisions I make in ME1, so there's always that option.

3. Halo Wars - I've never played a console RTS (not counting DS games), and I've heard that this is the best one. I'm not sure how this game holds up compared to the first 2, but I'm definitely intrigued by this game.

I think Orange Box is probably a no-brainer for $15, but I'd appreciate some suggestions on what my 2nd game should be. I'm leaning towards Mass Effect, but if I go with that, I'd like some opinions on whether or not I should stick with the 360 for the entire series or if it's OK to play the sequel, and by extension, the 3rd game on the PS3. Thanks in advance.

Have you played ME2 yet? The gameplay is significantly refined and improved in the sequel, but ME1 is still well worth playing. The story is fantastic and while not necessary to enjoy the game, being able to carry your Shepard and his decisions from one game to another is one of the coolest aspects of the ME series.

2. Mass Effect


Yes, ME is very much worth playing. Better even better storytelling than ME2. Personally I would keep the ps3 version of ME2 and not worry too much about the carryover between games. Or you could wait to pick up a 360 version of ME2 that will include DLC, which will probably come out eventually.

Not sure if this is allowed so if not I apologize in advance. I want to buy a PS3 Wireless Headset and this B1G1 50% off is a good deal if I had a friend to buy another one as well....since I don't, I'm looking for someone to split the cost of two PS3 Wireless Headsets. I realize I'm new to this forum so I'm preferably looking for someone established within this forum so that I can go first in the deal to alleviate any concerns. Thanks.

I like Halo Wars even though a lot of people didn't. If you go in thinking 'it's an RTS", you should be fine. I just think a lot of people were like "OMGZ, HALO!" ...

I played a little bit of ME2 but not enough to feel that I'm invested in it or have a real feel for the game.

I've gone through the comic on the PS3 version, so I know all the major decisions are covered. However, I'm wondering if anything got lost in translation. In other words, does the PS3 comic cover every decision from ME1 that has a consequence in ME2, or are there minor points from ME1 that affected the 360 version of ME2 but aren't really covered in the PS3 version?

Halo Wars interests me because it's supposed to be a great console RTS, which is a rarity. I'm just not sure if it's worth getting this over ME or The Orange Box.

OK, I'm going to go ahead and get Orange Box and ME. However, I'd still like some opinions on whether or not to play the entire series on the 360 or just stick with my copy of ME2 on the PS3 and finish the series there.

Hey, i was checking out Catherine on ps3 and I saw the Special Offers Available link under the price. The deal is if you buy 2 copies of the standard ps3 version you get 50% off one copy. So it comes out to $60 for 2 copies. The trade in value for the ps3 version is $27 so if you trade one in you would be getting one copy for $33. Or if you can sell a copy for $40 its even better.
